Thanks so much for all of the feedback on my horse. I’ve decided I’m going to keep him. You’re all a bad influence. You know that? Or maybe a good influence. I know I’m going to be glad I kept him. Maybe we’ll have a “name that horse” contest to win ornaments from my Christmas line or something like that.
While shopping on Friday, I found something else I knew I was going to keep….this hutch.
I bought it for an HGTV.com article I’m working on and figured I would sell it when I was done. I found the perfect place in my house for it, though, so it’s a keeper. I love it when that happens!
I’ve always wanted a chippy, old hutch to house some ironstone and linens in and this is perfect. I’m still debating over whether I want to paint the interior or not…hmmm…
I’m looking forward to having some time to pay attention to my house a bit once the holiday open house is over. I have curtains to sew and rooms to paint and all sorts of work to do. Although all of my work is DIY/home related, it’s sometimes nice to work on things that I get to keep and enjoy. Things that are for myself and my family. My mom is also coming up in a few weeks to help me out and I plan to take full advantage of having her here!
Before I go, I just want to say that this is a very exciting time for me and my business. I just found out within the last few days that I am one step closer to reaching two of my goals…dreams, really. We’ll see how things shake out, but it’s exciting. Thanks so much to everyone who reads and subscribes to my blog, to those who link to me and post about me, those who sponsor my blog, encourage me, support me and purchase the things I find and make. You are all a part of this amazing journey.
